  • The Flexion Combination Bits are a variation of the original Combination Bit. Dispersing pressure to the nose, mouth, chin, and poll areas.

  • The Flexion Combination Bits offer swiveling cheek pieces that function independently. The movable cheek action aids in lifting each side of the horses shoulders and frame separately. They provide a softer, more lateral feel than the original style.

  • The Flexion Combination Bits are versatile, offering different options for leverage and function. You can attach a single rein to 3 different areas on the bit- the nose rope, the lower area of the shank or the shank at the corner of the mouth.
    You can use double reins in combination to any of the 3 areas.

  • Attaching a rein to the NOSE ROPE puts mild pressure across the nose and takes some concussion out of the mouth. It softens the feel of the bit, and slows it's action by dispersing the pressure to 4 areas on the head. The nose, mouth, chin and poll.

  • Attaching a rein to the LOWER SHANK area makes the bit function in a direct way with more leverage. Attaching a rein to the SHANK AT THE CORNER OF THE MOUTH provides a milder direct pressure on the bit. The shank options delete the nose pressure. The rope does not need to be removed, it will stay in place.

  • The Flexion Combination bits are offered with 2 MOUTHPIECE OPTIONS. Both are wide, flat and slow activating. They do not roll over fully or quickly and give the horse time to react to a request in a non-abrupt way. They are non-pinching, with a copper roller that stimulates saliva, keeping a nervous horse pacified, and encouraging the horse to loosen and soften in the jaw.

    -The STRAIGHT MOUTHPIECE is a Slanted/Low Port version of the original Mikmar Standard style. The Straight mouthpiece provides more leverage and a solid feel.

    -The JOINTED MOUTHPIECE is a Double-Jointed, Slanted/Low Port version of the original Mikmar Standard style. The Jointed mouthpiece affords the rider a softer more lateral connection.

  • The Flexion Combination Bits DISCOURAGE bit evasions like head tossing and high headedness, pulling, rooting, and defensive, nervous behaviors.

  • The Flexion Combination Bits ENCOURAGE responsiveness, correct head carriage, lateral and vertical flexion, collection, control, and relaxation.

  • Their versatility makes them a popular choice for Barrel Racing, Gaited horses, Jumping, Endurance and all levels of training and pleasure riding.

  • GAITED Riders can maintain a steady connection and encourage collection, helping the horse maintain their proper gaits consistently, without over-bitting, resulting in a smoother ride.

Sir, I received my bit and video and thought I would drop you a note. I am breaking a 3 year old mustang which I adopted from the BLM. I was having lots of trouble with him and that is why I ordered your bit in hopes that would help. I have had it on him twice now and he is a completely different horse with it. I am very happy that I ordered it! Thanks again. Kenneth

We operate a facility in Central PA that caters to show horses in the hunter and jumper rings. We do a lot of showing on the A circuit between Vermont and Florida. I have to admit when my wife and I saw the bits we were skeptical until a good friend of ours told us to try the bit. I have a mare that I bought in Germany this year and WOW what a difference it made getting her in and around the hunter ring. She use to pull on the ends of the ring as a greeny would do, and she was slightly stiff bending to the left. I now hack her in the mornings with it and school her over the jumps just prior to going in the ring before switching back to my show bridle. The past three A rated shows we have been Champion out of a bunch! The Mikmar bit has made the difference not only in her but in the whole crew. Christopher W.

I purchased the Mikmar Combination Bit for my Paso Fino and used it this past weekend. I found it to be everything you said! I was surprised at how easy my horse accepted it and seemed to enjoy it. I didn't have any problems with him not listening to me or pulling as he had in the past. It was a good investment! Jo Ellen Canton, Ohio
